    Anybody have any experience with these guns? I'm looking to find out the quality of them, cause I really really want an MP5 and these are actually legal in PRNJ. Comes with a lifetime warranty which makes me feel pretty good, but I know I've heard some trouble with previous MP5 clones like Special Weapons. So what is the general concensus?

    These are Special Weapons guns. Like Vulcan/Hesse, they change their name from time to time.

    That said, it should work fine. The biggest problem with SW was/is the owner.

    Is Bobcat Weapons Inc. owned by Special Weapons or Tactical Weapons?


    No. Bobcat Weapons is a separate corporation. Ownership of Special Weapons Inc. or Tactical Weapons Inc. has no ownership in Bobcat Weapons Inc. Bobcat Weapons Inc. is unafillitated with any other manufacturer of similar type firearms.

    So are they outright lying? Isn't that false advertisement?

    I read an article in Small Arms Review on Bobcat. Bobcat owner is a friend of SW's infamous Toad. Bobcat purchased their equipment and machinery from SW. Bobcat, according to the article is not affiliated with SW in any way.

    There's more than enough reason to believe there is some relationship between BW and SW. As to whether it will work or not. You pays your moneys and you takes your chances. Just don't expect it to perform like an H&K.

    Top Notch is another entity created by SW to keep Todd as far away from the buying public as possible.

    It's the same folks behind both.

    If you really want an MP5 clone, buy the parts and call Jayson at IGF.

    You'll get a reliable, functioning MP5.

    For that kind of money, wouldn't you be better served by an AR variant? Don't mean to sound like a butt, but....

    I already have an AR. The whole point is I want an MP5. ;)

    Ok this may be a dumb question, but what is IGF and how can I call them? :confused:

    Investment Grade Firearms. You'd be buying an MP5 made on a SW receiver and H&K parts, mostly.
